Comments about this page

How fascinated I was to see the pictures and articles on Edwinstowe Methodist Church. I attended this church with my mum and dad and I became a member and was married to my first husband at this chapel. The most interesting fact though is that my dad was a cabinet maker and he made the pulpit, communion table, christening font and the cross. His name was William Tippping. One day I will journey back to Edwinstowe and have a trip down memory lane.
